Notes:
I found this specimen of what appears to be some sort of lactarius mushroom growing in a hardwood forrest. The cap in concave with concetric yellow ocher rings. The under side of the cap has gills. The stipe has a thick stocky appearance rather short in compaison to the cap, stipe color is an off white hue.
